A liquid-liquid dispersion separation process was reviewed to enlighten a few aspects. A physical comprehensive model, followed by a mathematical model, was developed and compared to a set of experiments for the investigation of the liquid-liquid batch settler phase separation. Different parameters were checked experimentally, as initial dispersion heights, settler diameters, dispersion types, etc. Results allow the use of the experimental procedure, with the mathematical model, as a tool in monitoring the dispersion behavior in commercial units.
